how to design an edible landscape: unleash your inner gardener
Whether you have a tiny yard or a large lot, you can have a beautiful garden and eat it too! Edible landscapes filled with trees, shrubs, berries and perennial vegetables are a beautiful, sustainable method of growing food for yourself, increasing biodiversity, and attracting birds.

Leave a living legacy for future
Can we eat our landscapes...? I wondered if it was possible to take a town like
